Story of a Rebel If you above all have a deep passion for the music, success is not always enough to keep the wheels turning. Outlandish realized that fact last summer, when the hit-making Danish hip-hop group was on the edge of a break-up. After three years of intensive tour-activity in USA, Middle-east and Europe, Isam Bachiri, Lenny Martinez and Waqas Ali Qadri had such a poor communication that they no longer found inspiration in each other, but was working separately, trying of solo projects and ran out of ideas and enthusiasm. “Fortunately we got a wakeup-call and talked things over before it was too late. On the new record we reconnected with each other and with the love for life that drove us forward to begin with,” tells Lenny Martinez from the bands rehearsing-studio in Copenhagen, where the trio is preparing for the summer concerts and the presentation of their fourth album, Sound of a Rebel. Outlandish decided to start fresh and dumped one and a half years work including 25 tracks. It hurt, but the members all agreed that it was a necessary step to take. “In reality there was nothing wrong with the tracks, but something felt wrong inside of us and that reflected somehow in the music,” they all agree. To sacrifice such a major work effort and start all over takes self confidence, but the band with the biggest international hits of this decade and the most award winning Danish music name, does not have any regrets. In six months they wrote, rapped, sampled and co-produced Sound of a Rebel, which is the trios most energetic and united album to date. More mature and delicate in the sound than the group’s first two releases, Outland’s Official and Bread & Barrels of Water, and more out averted than the previous. “We are very satisfied with our previous releases that have brought a lot of good things our way, and still make sure that we are much requested internationally. But this is without doubt our most homogenous record and it is deep felt,” Waqas declares.


This time Outlandish teams up with super producers Frederik TAO (eight numbers), Bichi from Blue Foundation, Troo.L.S. and Louis Winding. That has created a collection of tight tracks full of life. The inspirations are hip hop, soul and world music, and the catching chorus is lined up as it is their custom, so nothing new in that matter. In the first single Rock All Day, Outlandish puts the worries aside and gets the party started – or the title track which is about breaking the routines that the group found itself in, between hectically tour activity and professionalization of friendships. “In many ways that particular track says it all. It wouldn’t have been an honest album if we’d continued on as before. If we don’t feel the music then we are not doing well, and that is exactly where we would have ended up otherwise,” Isam determines. Waqas agrees and explains that the lyrics this time focuses on life seen through the sunglasses of the three Copenhageners, who have all started their own families now. There is less religion and politics, and more observations from the near world: “Our lyrics are always as taken straight out of a diary. Everything we tell is something we’ve experienced or can relate to.” Among the topics, there is also room for telling stories about being turned into a “price wog” in the media - or spokesmen for terror and other absurdities, they do not stand for. There are also stories about missing the lady at home, or seeing old friends from Brøndby Strand end up struggling in life. In this way Someday deals with the ongoing gang war that takes place in the streets of Copenhagen: “It is the story about the fact that things can start of as innocent pranks, but then you meet the wrong people and maybe try to get some attention from home, because something isn’t as it should be in the family. We’ve seen it so many times,” says Lenny. It is certain, that Outlandish’ own little family has sorted things out. Actually the members are so eager to exploit their rediscovered joy of playing, that it beats everything else in the 12-year long career of the trio. As Waqas describes the time after the completion of Sound of a Rebel: “After we’ve recorded an album I am usually so beat-up that I almost need a month’s vacation. This time I just feel like getting out there and show people what we are doing here.”

9. SOMEDAY

[Isam] They were the youth, a faith who didn’t pray / Young ones from the hood came back another day / Told the old ones you’re wasting you time / “Time, what you know ‘bout that?” the old ones replied / Life’s like a parking lot, products don’t help a lot / Hoping they listen and wise up before they drop / Prayed for them to mend their brains / For the twig and the sky and every grain / For the hood grown soon, the streets to look too / Oughta to be cool, oughta to be true / Occasionally there would be one who come through / Fused to the sky and became one so

[Waqas] So, so, so, so, so, so, fresh / Half the youth won’t settle for less / Wait slow down you pace for a minute / Life ain’t even started you already up in it / Ain’t worth to giving in parts in it / Stuck in the brain, stuck in the fame / Stuck in the mind frame stuck in the paradigm / No changing lanes, hear me / Can I get a witness? Lord I’m in the midst of shit / And I know its getting too much / Ain’t filling the cup, cause I’ve had enough / And I fear for my son these streets stay tough / Once in a while there will be one who comes through / And I hope that its you, you, you, you [Chorus] I know it seems / Like just a dream / I try to reach but someone’s got to believe / Sometimes it seems / So hard to see / I know, I know someday we’ll all be free [Lenny] Qué, qué, qué, qué, qué, qué miedo / Perder este fuego de fuego / Sentir el dolor que me niego / Nunca saber lo que entrego / Tambaleo buscando salida / Pero mi sombra pesa, mi sombra carga / Mi alma herida, so la mano que me mata / So la mano que me falta


[Isam] They became men, of good, good men / Who been gangsters so long they walk like kings / Under the streetlights, they raise their arms / Hear us, too much pain on earth / No place to store with, we drown or burning / Six by ten prison cells we’ve earned / Occasionally there would be one who come through / Fused to the sky and became one so true [Chorus] [Lenny] Ser libre, libre, de todo lo que no sere (Someday we’ll all be free) / Ser libre, libre, de todo lo que me a da / A veces el mundo me mata [Isam] Like you wanted to bring life to me / My dead life like dead soil you bring water to / Busy watching DVD’s 24/7 / Ain’t even time for the D.A.D.’s going to heaven / There was the method of dealing / A fine method if you lived in the hood / Was done with smooth measure / On the corner everybody was, hustling / Worrying about the cause, trembling / So much that wanted the angels to stop crying / Keep struggling we’ll support you / You’re gonna make mistakes still support you / When you make mistakes we’ll be there for you / Occasionally there would be one who come through / Fused to the sky and became one so true [Chorus] [Lenny] Ser libre, libre / Someday / Ser libre, libre / Someday

I ain’t mad, Imma shine away your hate!


[Isam] Yeah I was born in the west/ Went to school in the west / Learned to walk in the west / Maybe die in the west / I am universal, got reasons, got blames / Feel flexible and simple / So fresh, so clean / Try to outcast my demons / Start fresh, new season / Till we change what is in ourselves / Go break your ego! [Chorus] [Lenny] Un moro, dos moros, tres moros que / Ponen en fuego los titulares / Pero en la caye tienen fe / Tres moros, dos moros, un moro mas (like this, life music) / esto es mas, que mas?

I’m half your size / I’m like a house of bricks / I’ve got that extra spice / Yes, I’m just full of tricks / My webs are made of kevlar / To resist a million kicks / Yes I’m a rolling stone / To me, nothing sticks / I’m going higher, even though I have withdrawn since 96 [Chorus]


11. CRASH N’ BURN

Yeah / You know these people they think we got the solution for everything out there / Like we can walk on water / We’re just human man

[Waqas] You are now / Officially turned into the critically acclaimed / So expect the unexpected / Or watch your dreams come down / To crash and burn / Cause when they’re not for free / You only feel let down, let down / So don’t you make a sound / Cause then they make you accountable / For every word that you utter from the gutter / Like the priceless Outland / Hold a crown / “But Akhi, you know music is the devil’s work” / “Plus when Lenny gonna convert?“ / “How do you make it work?“ / “Two Muslims, one Christian?“ / “And why don’t you put ‘em all work Fi Sabeel Allah?“ / Damn, I am not the way I’m often spoken about / So don’t you dare try to put words in my mouth / Just like you’re putting selfmade artificial facts about me in your head / See I never said that I care, was that prepared / See all I did was to spit my heart out / Remember that next time you try to make me a part of your world / Cause then your dreams come down crach n’ burn [Chorus] Do you wanna know a thing or two of how, of how to frame a young hustler like me / As we talkin’ before a while / You can call me this, you call me that, you call me this, you call me that / You can call me whatever / Is it ok if I do it myself [Lenny] Quémate / Choca / Cállate la boca / Como que mi victoria / Te sabia te derrota / Vaya / Toma / Dos puntos es sensuales que defina mi persona punto uno / Soy un tipo tranquilo pero mato la jugada / Sin resto lo que quiero no es lo que obligada / Soy un proteo tipo de que está equivocándose mi nene / De esta personaje que tengo los extremas un punto dos / También soy un cabrón / Y qué quieres todo bien claro / Yo no soy tu hermano porque me des la mano / No soy tu hermano porque somos judíos, musulmanes, o cristianos / Somos broa que estamos a la misma frecuencia espíritu a la frecuencia celebrar su gloria y trabajo porque estamos al que arriba sin que nadie aplastado [Chorus] [Isam] Ain’t no Islamist or date merchant / Don’t try to hate on me for soul searching / Even though I’m not from China I’m a go do my thing / Study the shaolin screaming free to death high [? ] / Don’t live in a tent n keep my wife in it all day / For the record, knew who she was before we got married Ok? / In my closet I have more than just robes and sandals / Never ever rode a camel / Exceptt when I went to the pilgrim / And I got hustle / Ate a “Falafel” I crumbled / Damn food, what a gamble / No I don’t think you’re an infidel / You should know that by now / I ain’t gonna tell shhhhshh cause there is nothing to tell / Mid-terms comin’ up I look out the window like Malcolm / Tell the Feds stop tappin’ my phone son / Give me some peace of mind and I’ll go back to my country / The only problem is that I’m already in it, G! [Chorus]


[Isam] I wanna live, I wanna give / I been a miner for a heart of gold / It’s these expressions I never ever give / I’ve been around the world searching for that peace / In the country / But all I had to do was look at the mirror / Tonight my armor became my prayers and each word / Contained the universe changing my baby’s diaper / For a heart of gold I would cross the ocean low / On and on I go without a simple glass of water no / The wrinkles on my face carrying my every case / On my shoulder blades now lets go [Chorus] Sound Of A Rebel! All I hear is the / Sound Of A Rebel! Never miss a beat with the / Sound Of A Rebel! He he ha ha / Sound Of A Rebel! Move alone / Sound Of A Rebel!
